J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World Crate January 2018 Review – The Ties That Bind Us
This month was pretty low on items – it features two wearables, a book, and a pin.
This month’s box also inverts – this always adds a little extra touch that I enjoy.
Each month arrives with an information card that details the items in your box.
Rowena Ravenclaw’s Diadem Pin – $5-10
The Horcrux pin series continues with the Diadem pin. I’ve been loving how intricate these pins have been – but I’m curious where they’ll go after the Horcrux series ends.
Black Family Tree Scarf – Value $20?
The main item of the month is this lightweight shawl/scarf.
It features details about the Black family with its all-over print. While it’s a nice item, it’s also something that I’ll never use – so that’s a big hit on the box for the item with the most value.
Hogwarts House Tie – Value $15-20?
The next item in the ‘Ties The Bind’ box is a literal tie.
You’ll receive a tie based on the house you chose when signing up. The tie itself is the quality I’d expect – with more of a glossy look to it.
The Films of Harry Potter: The Wand Collection Book – Value $20 based on the non-Loot Crate Edition
The final item in the box is a nice coffee table book that features all of the character wands from the films.
This is easily the highlight of the box for me. I’m not really sure what makes it the “Loot Crate Edition” though – maybe simply because it’s not a hardcover version? I will say, a hardcover version of this would be pretty great.
I’ve been liking all of the books we’ve been getting from Insight Editions across the Loot Crate universe lately – hopefully, they continue.
Verdict: I think this is the biggest let down from the Wizarding World Crate to date. On top of the small number of items in the box, the hero item was also something that I don’t use – so that’s a minus for me, personally. My biggest reaction came when unboxing the book – and that was the final item in the box, so all-in-all, this was a miss for me.
This was also late, again. This is January’s theme – and it just got to us towards the end of February – that was an extra hit to the items in the box.
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No. This was an older theme – the current theme can be found on the landing page!
